Grafton & Upton Getting its train to Hopedale ready

On Friday the 13th, 2018 a pair of G&U's MP15AC locomotives shunt cars to ultimately pull out sheet rock and nitric acid tanks to take to W Upton and Hopedale. In a previous life, MP15AC 1158 apparently had a an extra headlight or gyralight mounted on the nose. Also, survey stakes and new stone suggest a turnout will be installed to perhaps expand the compact, congested yard and/or lead to an engine house that is rumored to be built.
